While you have her doing that for you, some things you may need to know about living in the big island are easy to learn:

  • Life is slower in the big It won’t take you long to realize (especially if you’re going to drive) that no one in the big island is in any particular hurry to get anywhere. You’ll also find that most people opt for a bicycle, moped, or public transportation over driving a car. Many also choose good old fashioned walking as well.
  • Attitude is Far Different. Attitude is a double edged sword here. If you have a bad attitude, you will quickly be rewarded with meeting the surliest bunch of people you’d ever want to know. But if your attitude is positive and upbeat, be prepared to meet the finest bunch of people you’ll ever have the pleasure of knowing.

  • You Will Need to Learn to Embrace the Rain. Rain is frequent in the big island, but it is probably not the cold, blustery type of rain storm you may be accustomed to on the mainland. The rain here is more like a warm, gentle shower that serves mostly just to refresh everything.
  • Paradise Doesn’t Come Cheap. Another thing you’ll find is everything seems to cost more here. The biggest reason for this is probably shipping and transportation costs. Remember, you are now living in a relatively remote location.
